    Nothing else is running but AIM and the chat session, no music, etc. The video is crystal clear. I am on broadband as well. This is frustrating as this is the first time trying to use video chat and have audio issues. My son-in-law is leaving for Iraq in 1 1/2 months and wanted to be able to chat with him.

You may be having a bandwidth issue. the best thing to do here is free up your ram. make sure you have all the extra programs that are running in backround closed down when on a video chat call. You want to make sure your not downloading stuff the same time aswell. Just have your video chat program running and try it like that to see if the audio becomes in sync. you also want to have a highspeed internet connection.

    it could still be slow ram. if your not running enough ram in your system.. and your on broadband connection so you should be able to get the audio working. try using another chat program just to rule out software issues. try msn messager aim has audio problems and if your husban is going overseas your better off switching to msn messager because the aim is gonna be really slow. . is this a wireless or wired connection? cause that can make a differance.



    something else you should try is powercycling your modem. Over a period of time your modem slows down. unplug the power from your modem. and router if you have one. shut down your computer. plug back in the modem wait until all the lights are back to normal then plug back in the router. wait until lights are normal. Normal meaning the way the looked before you unpluged them. Then turn on your computer. Try the connection again.

Can a center channel speaker be added to a harmon karden 3385 av receiever


Nope, 3385 is Stereo only, IE right and left. It has no processing for multi channel audio. It is an absolutely fantastic bullet proof stereo receiver but will never operate as a home theater unit.

If you want a center and rears you need and AVR series receiver.

Cheers,

Only I can see my Webcam


Send this to your brother and friends so they have their computer setup properly.

Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ )
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next "Calling and Devices" on the right, set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or headphones/mike.
Next go to the Test Audio section below where you just setup the microphone & speaker and (written in blue) click on "Open the call setup assistant"
and the "Yahoo Call Setup Assistant" window will open to the left and follow the the instructions. Click on FINISH and the audio will be setup.
Next go to "Webcam" and click in the circle "Allways allow the following people to view my webcam.
Next Click on "Super Webcam" snd in the circle click "Start Super Webcam mode automatically".
Then click OK and it should work.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.

Logitech Quickcam Chat - No audio


Try testing it, last time I checked skype has a test section, its hard to find, but its there. You just talk into the mic and skype records it. Then play back.

It is possible the mic isn't working.

Before you consider taking it back, make sure you follow the instructions to the letter.
